Why does this have to be so damn hard. its like i am on a roller coster that refuses to just stop. up one minute and down the next. I ve been on this for almost three weeks i have been dreading going on the scale so i dont get disappointed....... yeah right, finally got the courage to step on a scale this morning and my worst fears came to pass!!!!! how can this be ?!?!!?
i exercise five times a week, eating mainly fruits and vegetables and i get to lose only 2kg after 3weeks??!?!?!?!?!?!?!? with all the hard work i put in this is what i get a miserable 2kg. at this rate it might take me 10years to get to my desired goal. and i am beginning to ask myself is it really worth it. all the stress, the unhapinnes, the pain........ i am so depressed i need a drink.

    Don't run to the scale my friend. Judge it by how your clothes fit. Write down everything in a daily journal. It's just as simple as this...eat less and move more. Simple yes...easy no. But we must do it. You're gonna love what you become on the outside because you're already beautiful on the inside. You can do this and so can I.

    Gurl, I know just what you mean.

    I have given up red meat, and let weeks go by before I look at a potato chip. I haven’t seen a Big Mac in at least two years and couldn’t finish one if I wanted to. Yet, I see no change in my weight.

    I have been paying attention to people like Gary Null Michael Pollan and Mike Anderson. The so called healthy food we are eating is not really healthy at all. Read their books and watch their videos.

    There could be a number of foods that are keeping you at your present weight. Wheat, gluten or dairy products. Watch out for the so called lite, fat free and diet prepared foods. Watch out for the word, “natural”. It usually doesn't mean much. Watch out for deceptive names like Healthy Choice or Lean Cuisine. Read those labels. If you can't pronounce it, don't eat it. Watch the sodium in those foods.

    My theory is that genetically modified foods, hormones, and preservatives are wreaking havoc with our bodies. The produce section has no labels. They should.

    I understand completely - I've been eating so much better and working out daily, but the scale doesn't move. However, the inches are coming off (granted quarter-of-an-inch), but my endurance is better. Just keep looking beyond the scale and we'll get there (within the next 5 years it seems - smile)

    First, let me say that you are not alone. I have had the same feelings that you are having right now. It took me over 2 months to really see some differences in my weight and body. But during my journey for those two months, I noticed that I was feeling really good. The exercise was making me stronger and my endurance improved GREATLY. So I took that as my positive reinforcement. My goal is to lose weight, but MAINLY I want to be healthy.

    Give yourself time. Don't look for quick changes. Even though your efforts don't appear to be working, they are. I promise you. today, was a good day for me. I know that the work I'm doing is paying off finally. I feel great. I'm looking better.

    Hang in there. I'm with you...you are not alone.

    Be proud of yourself for what you have done the last 3 weeks. The scale did move and thats something. I know this can be discouraging but your worth it. Don't give up! emoticon
